5 Incredible Bucket List Destinations in 2022 – The 5 Star Luxury Hotel Community

Otto I. Eovaldi

2022 is the year of travel! Although half of it has already passed, there is still enough time to plan an epic adventure (or even adventures!). Below you will find five fantastic destinations that should be included in your 2022 travel list. Just beware – picking only one will be quite the challenge.

Sardinia, Italy

Finding reasons to visit Italy is easy. For a long time, the stunning country has been amongst the most visited destinations in the world. With such amazing food, fascinating history, and rich cultural life, Italy is a place that offers something new each time you see it.

In the country, there is no shortage of excellent beaches, but some of the best ones can be found in Sardinia.

For your next 2022 adventure, perhaps it is worth planning a trip to the star-studded island? Home to mesmerizing white sand beaches and awe-inspiring turquoise waters, it is a place you’ll want to come back to again and again.

Sardinia has a number of five-star hotels and resorts which offer spectacular experiences. Stay at Forte Villa Hotel II Castello and lay or play in the sunshine! The luxury oasis includes furnishes that are a homage to colorful Sardinian crafts and ultra-contemporary design.

If you book your vacation through PrivateUpgrades, you can enjoy various benefits, including an upgrade upon arrival, daily buffet breakfast and dinner, $100 food & beverage credit, complimentary SPA access with the use of Thalasso pools, 20% discounts on spa treatments, and many other.

Kyoto, Japan

Another city that should be on your travel bucket list is Kyoto. If you are planning a trip to Japan, including the iconic destination in your itinerary is a must. With each passing year, the vibrant city is getting more popular amongst tourists. As its luxury hotel scene continues to evolve, more travelers decide to discover everything it has to offer.

Kyoto has gained a reputation as a place of fine cuisine. If you wish to enjoy it yourself, stop by restaurants like Kyoto Kitcho Arashiyama. Although Tokyo is a magnificent destination, perhaps, this year, it is time to get a different experience?

Whether you decide to stay at Ritz Carlton Kyoto, Suiran Kyoto, Aman Kyoto, or any other five-star accommodation, it will certainly be a memorable adventure.

Turks and Caicos

When you imagine a paradise, it most likely looks something like Turks and Caicos, so it is not surprising to see the island noted as a 2022 bucket list destination. With such spectacular white-sand beaches that seem to stretch as far as the eye can see, it really is one of the dreamiest places in the world.

Whether you decide to explore the beautiful Grace Bay shores or wish to experience the private islands, it would be difficult to find more luxury experiences anywhere else in the Caribbean.

To have a memorable adventure, consider staying at Ritz Carlton, Turks and Caicos, which debuted only in June 2021. The fresh hotel has an impeccable ocean view, a fantastic spa, plenty of club-level perks, and other wonderful offerings.

There is a reason so many stars rush to Turks and Caicos. Thanks to its abundant marine life and the incredibly picturesque coast, it is the perfect holiday destination.

If you book your stay through PrivateUpgrades until 15th December, you can enjoy a 25% discount and other fantastic benefits like an upgrade on arrival, a $100 resort credit, and more.

Lanai, Hawaii

In the last couple of years, tourism in Hawaii has been booming. In fact, there have been a lot of talks regarding overtourism, especially in 2021, after the borders were reopened.

Nowadays, it is more important than ever to think about conscious travel. If you wish to experience the beauty the Aloha State has to offer, instead of heading to Maui, opt for a tr
ip to much more remote Lanai.

In 2012, 98% of the island was bought by billionaire Larry Ellison. His goal was to turn it into an exclusive destination. With the opening of Four Seasons Lanai, that seems to have become a reality.

The five-star oceanfront resort is the perfect tropical getaway. With museum-quality art and exceptional facilities, it will be a great choice regardless of whether you are visiting solo, with your significant other, or the whole family.

Another option is to discover Four Seasons’ sister property – the Sensei Lanai, which offers a wellness-focused itinerary. Just imagine – sleep analysis, forest bathing, horseback riding, a thermal body mapping, and the amazing food of Nobu – all within one place.

As a PrivateUpgrades member, you can enjoy exclusive benefits – daily breakfast credit, $100 resort credit, access to up to 12 daily well-being classes, transportation to Four Seasons Resort Lanai, round-trip flights from Honolulu on Lanai Air, and many others.

Napa Valley, California

Although Napa Valley is mainly known for its outstanding wines, there is so much else to see and do in the wonderful region. If you are a fan of outdoor activities, you will never get bored.

Enjoy biking, hiking, and hot springs throughout the 53,000 acres of land. Gourmets will have a fun time trying Michelin-starred restaurants. With almost perfect weather all year round, Napa Valley is certainly a destination that deserves your attention.

The region, of course, has its fair share of luxurious accommodations. If you aren’t sure where to stay, we suggest heading to the recently opened Stanly Ranch. The stunning resort includes 78 cottage suites, all of which feature outdoor terraces with fire pits.

Since the accommodation is located on a 700-acre private ranch that dates back to the 19th century, the atmosphere really is unbeatable.

To experience the magic yourself, book a stay through PrivateUpgrades. This way, you will have access to many exclusive promotions and offers, for example, a $1000 hotel credit for suites, early check-in/late check-out, and others.


Whether you decide to discover the scenic Napa Valley, soak in the sun at the tropical Lanai or Turks and Caicos, or see what Sardinia or Kyoto has to offer, there is no doubt you are in for a treat!

These destinations are currently all the rage, so be amongst the lucky ones who get to experience them! Need help planning your 2022 trip? No problem – we are here to assist! Reach out to our team to discuss details.
